Abstract:

"The science of behavior is one of the most exact and fruitful of the psychological disciplines; yet it is frequently misrepresented and often the layman is hardly aware of its existence. This exceptionally rewarding book describes and discusses the broad experimental achievements of the behaviorists, in a lucid and non-technical style. W. H. Thorpe wrote in The Cambridge Review: 'It is so well done that I doubt whether there is a psychologist or ethologist anywhere who would not profit in knowledge and understanding by reading at least some part of it: for the simplicity of its writing and the clarity of its exposition are indeed notable.'"--Cover.
